Carl is a long time cyclist and IT meister and he loves his numbers and statistics, he can recall his best times on many an Alpine climb and Yorkshire Col at the drop of a hat. You have to get everything right for Carl, but surprisingly no powermeter.
The challenge with this build was to design a bike that not only fitted well but would also need to incorporate a new riding position, this can be risky as feeling not quite right on a brand new bike can be a bit of a drama after a five figure investment. We found the right place for Carl and he loves his Passoni, even the narrower handlebars, we're not so sure about that carbon saddle though!
"Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position.
Felt more connected and compact on the bike.
Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."

"Hey Julian and Phil,
I hope you are both well.
I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great!
Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before.
All the best,
National Champion / Professional Bike Rider
"Thanks very much for consultation last week - since I saw you I do not have anything like the same amount of pain I was experiencing previously. I am so much more at ease with my new positioning and my posture feels right now."
"Thanks very much Phil.
Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects!
"A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."
